The Pastors

Pastors Phil & Lynda

Phil and Lynda Thomas have been serving the community as the pastors of the Elim church in Pontypridd since 2010.


Phil is from Aberdare, and worked as a police officer in South Wales for 20 years before going into ministry. Lynda is from Cardiff, and worked as a missionary with YWAM for many years. After marrying, they worked together as missionaries in Turkey.

Having served the community in Turkey, Phil and Lynda were called back to Wales, where they now work with the local community as pastors. They will always have a heart for sharing the Gospel & the love of God with all nations, and are Regional Missions Co-ordinators for Elim Wales and West, they also sponsor the work of the charity, Children of Hope, which is based in Uganda. But their main focus is now sharing the love of God, with the local community in Pontypridd.
